'Siah's 6th Birthday

Sweet, little Josiah turned 6 on November 6th! :)

We did the customary "wake-up birthday song" and Josiah pretended to be asleep the whole time:

After devotions, we ate breakfast!  Josiah wanted to have Egg McMuffins (homemade that is!)...


...and berry crisp!

The handsome birthday boy waiting for breakfast! :)

After breakfast, the day went on and we prepared a birthday feast for dinner!

Josiah wanted home made fries, grilled chicken, hot dogs, and rolls.

The candy he picked out was the "Nite Crawlers" a.k.a. sour gummy worms. :)

When everyone was assembled the food was blessed and the eating began!  It was a delicious meal!

I don't remember what Judah was making faces at during the meal, but the photos were too precious not to post. :)

After dinner, 'Siah opened his presents!

Eden got Josiah this coloring book and he loves it!
(Notice his face...I use to think that Daddy and Seth were the master silly-face makers but Josiah is quickly gaining ground. :)

Lexi looks confused...

Uncle Kev, Aunt Mae-Mae, Cadence, Justus, and Asher gave Josiah this mitt and ball.  I know when the weather gets warm again he'll be playing with this a lot!  (Provided he doesn't throw it through a window. :)

Someone (my memory doesn't remember... :) got 'Siah a huge Pixie stick.

The last present of the night required 'Siah to go on a "hot-cold" hunt.  He found the "item" under the sofa in our schoolroom...and I don't think he could've been happier with what he found:
His own bow and arrow! :)

Next came the ice cream cake...and we all sang "Happy Birthday"!

Josiah's ice cream cake had a layer of mint choc. chip ice cream on the bottom, then crushed up Oreos, next came vanilla ice cream, a layer of magic shell and finally, our home made whipped cream decorated with sprinkles!

We watched Spirit as we ate our ice cream and then 'Siah's birthday party was over.  :-(

P.S. - The below verse gives you an idea of why Daddy and Mama named Josiah, Josiah! :) 
"Moreover Josiah put away those who consulted mediums and spiritists, the household gods and idols, all the abominations that were seen in the land of Judah and in Jerusalem, that he might perform the words of the law which were written in the book that Hilkiah the priest found in the house of the LORD."
2 Kings 23:24
